Guam- The Guam Humanities Council is hosting its second "Eat Your Heritage" tour to draw connections between food, health, culture and the environment.

Guam- The Guam Humanities Council is hosting its second "Eat Your Heritage" tour to draw connections between food, health, culture and the environment.

Executive Director Kimberlee Kihleng says the second food democracy tour brings Chef Mark Noguchi, Community Organizer Amanda Corby and Chef Intern Kelley Pittman to Guam from Hawaii.

“For us to be able to come out from Hawaii to collaborate with you guys to produce a local source dinner to showcase other parts of the world, connecting hemispheres, that's what I also believe our ancestors did,” said Chef Noguchi. “You say that this program revolves around food, health, culture and the environment. That's very much who are as island people.”

The trio have partnered with the council and local chefs to educate culinary students and the community on what it means to "Eat Your Heritage."

“We work with non profits. We work with farmers. We work with chefs to really think about everything that we do as an entire food system. So from the ground, to our plates to the waste that comes from that...how everyone can communicate together,” said Corby.

A media conference at the Hyatt was organized this morning [Monday] where the buzz around environmental and cultural sustainability was discussed. Kihleng tells PNC the focus needed to be on the pacific region.

“We wanted to focus on the pacific and bring our work, not only with native communities in general, but also communities within the pacific,” said Kihleng. “We really turned to Hawaii because they have a very vibrant sustainable food movement and we thought it'll great to partner with a chef whose really been a leader in that movement.”

“This is just strengthening a movement that we just started here in the last 6 years,” said Executive Chef Peter Duenas. “A movement for utilizing our local products, our local produce and creating a more sustainable Guam.”

The tour culminates with a Chamorro Hawaiian Fusion interpretive cooking event at the Hyatt this coming Saturday, April 6.
